The Mets can spend this offseason. That has been the overall message conveyed for the past several months, however will they spend and to what degree remains the begging question. The “Red Sox Model” has been mentioned a great deal, meaning the Amazin’s would avoid the top-tier free agents, instead finding the Shane Victorinos and Mike Napolis on the market and signing them to lesser deals. Staying true to the theme of this mid-level shopping […]
Opening Day Lead-off Man, Collin Cowgill On September 22, 2013, Rob Rogan of Mets360.com wrote an article titled, The 2013 Mets were worse than you thought. In his article, he includes the following table to show how the Mets performed by position using fWAR: From April 20 - May 25, the Mets record was 9-22, a .290 winning percentage. Horrible. Their opponents were: Nationals, Dodgers, Phillies, Marlins, Braves, White Sox, Pirates, Cardinals, Cubs, Reds, and Braves. Some […]
Ever since we acquired Eric Young Jr. from Colorado after they placed him on waivers, I never looked at him as anything more than a utility outfielder. I saw a player who was taking advantage of his increased playing time which came as a result of flops by Collin Cowgill, Lucas Duda, Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Mike Baxter. Young took hold of his new opportunity and has exceeded everyone’s expectations. Mark Simon of ESPN New York […]
Who remembers John Milton Rivers? You know, that speedy center fielder that used to run funny and played for the Yankees during their 1977 and 1978 championship years? I guess you probably know him better by his baseball name, Mickey… Last week, I had an interesting debate with the executive producer of SNY, when I asked him why two of his blogs posted that Daniel Huchingson was suspended for 50 games. “It’s his given name.” […]
Matt Harvey was in no mood to talk to reporters yesterday, telling a group of them, “I’m good” after they approached him wanting to know more about his tweet heard ’round the world. The injured ace, who is hoping to avoid Tommy John surgery, was diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament, but tweeted Tuesday that he’ll be back on the mound next April. I can’t say that I blame him for shunning the press after SNY […]
In a chat for ESPN Insider, baseball analyst Keith Law fielded a couple of questions about the Mets including one on Juan Lagares. Keith Law: Pretty darn good defender, better than I’d ever heard (never saw him before he reached the majors). He was 10th on my Mets prospect rankings before 2012, so he was on the radar, but spent about a decade in Savannah before he finally hit enough to move up the ladder. Joe […]
Looks like what I was afraid would happen is gonna happen… Terry Collins told reporters last night that he is going to reward Ike Davis for raising his average above the Mendoza Line by putting him against lefty starter beginning tonight against Hyun-jin Ryu or on Wednesday against Chris Capuano. Since his promotion, Davis’s batting average had climbed from .161 to .205. Of course what that doesn’t telly you is that Davis hasn’t homered in his last 110 […]
A Mets team source told Andy Martino of the Daily News, that provided the Mets don’t collapse down the stretch of the season, there’s a good possibility Terry Collins could be retained beyond 2013, “We can’t have a collapse, and Terry knows that. Otherwise, at the end of season, something good might happen,” the source told Martino. With that bit of news this morning as my intro, here is my Fan Shot on the matter […]
Considering how many years I have been extolling the virtues of Juan Lagares, I found it almost embarrassing this morning when I discovered that I never designed a custom graphic for him in all this time. Can you ever forgive me Don Juan? This talented prospect whose combination of power, speed and defense has seduced me since I first laid eyes on him at Binghamton, had all five of his tools on full display as […]
